VERSE 1:
He was sittin there
His Brushin hand
Painting waves as they dance upon the sand
With every stroke
He brought to life
The deep blue of the ocean
Against the mornin sky
I asked him if he only painted ocean scenes
He said for 20 dollars
I'll paint you anything

CHORUS:
Could you paint me a birmingham
Make it look just the way I plan
A little house on the edge of town
Porch goin all the way around
Put her there in the front yard swing
Cotton dress, make it early spring
For a while she'll be mine again
If you could paint me a birmingham

Verse 2:
He looked at me
With knowing eyes
And took a canvas from a bag
There by his side
Picked up a brush
And said to me
Son just where in this picture
Would you like to be
I said if there's any way you can
Could you paint me back into her arms again

CHORUS:
Could you paint me a birmingham
Make it look just the way I plan
A little house on the edge of town
Porch goin all the way around
Put her there in the front yard swing
Cotton dress, make it early spring
For a while she'll be mine again
If you could paint me a birmingham

CHORUS:
Paint me a birmingham
Make it look just the way i plan
A little house on the edge of town
Porch goin all the wat around
Put her there in the front yard swing
Cotton dress, make it early spring
For a while she'll be mine again
If you could paint me a birmingham

If you could paint me a birmingham

    Could you paint me a birmingham? Make it look just the way i plan. A little crack house on the edge of town. Junker cars all the way around. Put her there in the front yard swing. Cotton panties, make um pink or green. For a dollar she'll be mine again! If you could paint me a birmingham...
